  • Reason
    Ndl has determined there is a risk that disposable reflective marker spheres from these lots may separate at the mid—point where the two halves of the sphere are sealed together. such separation could occur either during installation onto reference arrays or surgical tools (i.E., when threading them onto posts) or at any time during a surgical procedure. this is due to inadequate curing of the adhesive that joins to two halves of the sphere. the root cause of this failure has been identified as a manufacturing issue in which a piece of the fabric material remained in the path of the uvnisible light used to cure the adhesive.
